Designer Spotlight: Juun J makes us hate everything in our closets!


When I first discovered designer Juun J’s AMAZING S/S 08′ men’s line of unisexish pieces on Totem, it was a sweet and sour moment. I immediately fell in love, butterflies and all; at the same time I almost instantly hated every article of clothing that I own. Juun J’s eye for detail and ultra-wearable, why-didn’t-I-think-of-that reconstructed pants, jumpsuits, shirts, and shorts really inspire one to go beyond the boundaries while still keeping it classic. The designer’s basic concepts are ‘classic’ and ‘tailored’ and more specifically, he “likes to create new silhouettes and garments from an overlapping of items… silhouette to silhouette all of which dramatically conflict with each other.” This is obvious when viewing the line.


Junn J has taken a few classic trench coats, deconstructed them, and reconstructed them into jumpuits, capes, and even a kilt. He has also taken the classic brilliance of the trench and applied its elements to high-waisted pleated pants and shorts with suspenders. My favorite pieces exemplify the designers love for mixing elements. For these, he meshes classic blazers and crisp shirts with well-tailored shorts, creating luscious avant garde jumpsuits. He tops off the line with short sleeve cardigans, slim pants, parachute pockets, and pops of Teal Green.


That’s it. It’s time for a little “winter cleaning” closet overhaul. Out with the old and in with the Juun!
